This is a significant redevelopment project for a small village in Westchester County. It occupies several blocks along Main Street which is the principal commercial corridor linking the village to the Metro North train station. The massing is animated by variations in the rooflines and changes in the set-backs that break down the scale of the small apartment buildings. Parking is located behind the buildings and is accessed from the cross streets. Several small passageways penetrate the buildings at the ground floor, linking the parking areas to the street. All of the buildings have a strong orientation to the sidewalk, and the ground floors are either entrances to the buildings or retail and office store fronts.
